A few fab ladies

A few girls I'm applauding lately?

Sara Kate Huff
Sara Kate Studios
She's a stylist that just opened up the most charming online shop. Who doesn't need a spool of velvet ribbon or a sandalwood candle?

Annie Griffin and Robin Gerber
Annie Griffin Collection
Sisters and business partners, these two girls from Memphis launched the most darling line of clothing.

Alex Berlin
An interior designer and blogger from Chicago, we have google chat dates to talk about design and business and current projects we are working on.

I'm also lucky enough to know a few women that are involved in inspiring non-profit organizations. 
You can read about an after school arts program called DREAMS here and a program that provides backpacks full of food for children who would not have food on the weekends otherwise called Porch Durham here

I feel like women can be so jealous and catty and not supportive of others that are doing well. Instead of spending all of that time and energy in a negative way, let's try our best to up lift one another.  I read a blog post from Mackenzie Horan that was talking about this exact thing. 
Here is my favorite snippet:
Let's applaud one another's choices, support them if we like, and keep it to ourselves if we don't. Madeleine Albright said, "There's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women." I think we can all agree the world is a better place when we do.

Do you have any favorite business women that you want to applaud? I'd love to hear about them!


  1. Aw what a nice little treat to see this tonight. Thanks lady. We need to schedule another chat date ASAP. I can't wait to hear about the new office. xo

  2. check out cookies for kids cancer founded by Gretchen Holt Witt - a fellow MC alum of ours! She's doing amazing things!!

  3. I acknowledge your post and appreciate the content for sure but why do women have to be judged on "doing well" solely on business or their careers? I am 33 and still trying to figure it out, life and career. I am certainly not catty or jealous of women or friends doing great things around me but in contrast I hope others don't think I'm not "doing well" or am not a successful human being just because I'm not a career woman yet or don't yet know what path is mine to follow. That being said I strive for happiness and a full personal life so that makes me feel far more valued than what I do for 8 hours a day. Great post though. Congratulations to all happy, fulfilled women and men!
